Three innings down, nary a base runner

CC Sabathia is on pace for a 111-pitch perfect game, if you want to keep that theme going. Through three innings, Sabathia has struck out four, and he's looked good doing it. He struck out Matt Wieters, Manny Machado, and Mark Reynolds in consecutive at-bats over the second and third innings, with Machado going down on three pitches.

Hammel hasn't been quite as sharp as Sabathia, but he's been as effective. In the third inning, he allowed three line-drive outs to the hitters he faced, but they all found gloves. Just like the Yankees, hitting into all that bad luck. When will this curs-ed franchise catch a break?

The lineups have turned over, though, so let's see if anyone can do something that resembles anything at all.
